What They Say:
Mayweather: "I will continue to have fun and entertain until I am ready to say 'enough is enough'.

Gotti: "I have some experience under my belt with two fights against some tough opponents, and here we are.
"I am focused and we will just see where this takes me.
"But I am definitely going to go back to MMA because my last fight was a loss against somebody I had no business losing to, and that doesn't sit well with me."
